Goal 3 Strategies

  • Help members envision their ideal life after they get permanent housing. You could ask:

“Let’s fast forward and imagine that you are already in your own apartment. What does your day look like? What are some of the things you’re doing?”

“Can you tell me a bit about your hopes or dreams for the future?”

“What kind of dreams did you have before you started having problems with alcohol or drug use?”

“If you went to bed and a miracle happened while you were sleeping, what would be different when you woke up? How would you know things were different?”

  • Form a Peer Advisory Council to connect members to new opportunities.
  • Invite alumni to speak to groups.
  • Host informal social events that connect new participants with alumni.
  • Connect members with peer staff who work intentionally to inspire hope. Ask peer staff to help members explore new activities and interests.
